Getting rss data into Max/Jitter

I’ve come across this wonderfully simple little video from the guys at SyynLab:

http://syynlabs.com/projects/projections/color-blinds

what particularly interests me in this is the part where the colours (in the live version) come directly from Kuler in real time using the Kuler API. I know this particular project was done with Processing, but I am too much of a novice in ruby Processing, but I am pretty sure however that it can be done in Max, which I am a lot better at ;)

Now, I went I got myself a Kuler API key, which allows me to call various lists of formatted RSS feed items (http://learn.adobe.com/wiki/display/kulerdev/B.+Feeds). My question is how do I get this into max? all of the rss feed items contains the hex codes which I would like to use to affect the colours in some of my video work…
While I consider myself good enough in MaxMSPJitter, I’ve never looked into network, connecting online, etc. I know it’s possible (I think) I just don’t know how exactly…

hoping someone out there can help me out, or at least point me in the right direction.

Thanks

thanks, this is definitely a step in the right direction, I knew there had to be an object like that, I just didn’t know which one…

I’ll do a little playing around to see what I can do with it and report back my progress.
